Company Information

A 90-MINUTE kickabout at Milton Keynes Dons football club can be thanked in part for the close-knit team at Mane. Last year Luigi Pacelli, the Watford-based recruitment agency’s managing director, hired the football stadium for the day so the staff of 55 could bond over their ball skills.

The focus on regular team-building events has resulted in engaged employees who say they love working for this organisation (82% positive). In the office people are kept motivated by music playing 24/7 and free fruit deliveries, while those celebrating their birthdays are encouraged to take the day off on top of their 22 days of annual leave.

High achievers are rewarded with a place on an annual company trip abroad, which has included destinations such as Las Vegas, Portugal and New York. Such initiatives make for happy people who feel cared for as individuals (83%).

Founded in 1993, this recruiter makes learning a priority, with £17,000 spent on training last year to encourage employees in all areas of the business to gain new knowledge. New starters are enlisted in the Mane training academy from day one. Employees feel their jobs are good for personal growth (83%) and that they gain valuable experience (86%).
